CCC to Meet in Santa Monica Wed – Fri

By Sue Kaplan
California Coastal Commission will meet at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, East Wing, 1855 Main Street, Santa Monica 90401, Monday thru Friday from 9 am.

The Coastal Commission meets monthly in a different coastal community each session. This month they are meeting here in Santa Monica at the Civic Center, Wednesday through Friday. It is a wonderful opportunity to observe them at close hand and to even participate.

Anyone can come and speak during Public Comment. Many Venice residents do take the opportunity to speak on development issues that impact us in Venice and will do so this week. We should as well.

This month’s hearing is really important to Venice. The CCC is wrestling with how to protect Venice as a unique coastal community and visitor destination. They have been hearing from us for months and have responded very positively. They recognize that Venice is in danger of losing what they have dubbed “the Venice vibe.” They are trying to decide what they need to do. We need to be there to move them forward. If there isn’t a strong showing on our home turf, they’re going to wonder what the fuss was all about. This is a crucial moment. Let’s be there to light a fire under them.

Public Comment is at the beginning of each meeting at 9 am. Please get there early to fill out a speaker card.

On Friday afternoon, they will be taking a tour of Venice. Anyone is invited to follow them in their car. It will take place at the close of Friday’s meeting.

If you can not attend, you may listen to the meetings on their website as they stream the proceedings. They are then loaded onto their website in the archives for access at any time.
